Archived Blue-green Algal Bloom Notices
Suspicious or confirmed blue green algae blooms were reported on the waterbodies, listed in the table below, earlier in 2014. It was later reported that these blooms are no longer visible. Waterbodies listed multiple times may indicate that bloom conditions change frequently.
Waterbodies with current bloom notifications are listed on the Blue-Green Algal Bloom Notices web page. Lake Champlain blooms are not reported here- this information can be found on the Vermont Department of Health's blue-green algae notification page.
|Waterbody Name||County||Status Date|

|Little We Wah Lake||Orange||6/25/2014|

* No blooms were reported as of the status date listed above. These lakes are monitored at a greater frequency and at more locations than other lakes sampled through the DEC monitoring programs. The data collected at these lakes show that bloom conditions may change rapidly. Lake residents and visitors should avoid exposure to any shoreline scums they may encounter after the status date. These lakes may reappear on the Blue-green Algae Bloom Notices page.
